I was diagnosed 3/09 and have been on Gleevec ever since. I have experienced many of the "expected" side effects but I have something new and I am wondering if anyone else has this problem. My elbows, wrists and knees are very achy, much what I imagine arthritis feels like. Has anyone else experienced this and have you found an easy method to combat the discomfort? Also, when does the tiredness seem to go away. I do really well most days but at least once a week, I feel like I am going to collapse from exhaustion. Many thanks.
